Helping Hand


Daily Prompt :  Help

Helping someone always makes me happy,

Be it a parent, a sibling or even my puppy

My patient, my friend, my child or my hubby…

 

The radiant smile, that look divine 

Ups the brightness of the one on mine..

Many a sleepless night suited me fine…

 

Grateful I am to be made an instrument

Happy to help, happy to have meant

that lil extra in that little moment….! 

 

May  I always  have that opportunity

To be of help, in any place, any eventuality!

Nerve

Destiny, where did you get  The Nerve

To make her life, on curves,  go sverve?

Why did you make her fall in love

If he was  so many a notch above?

Why oh why did you have the nerve

To make her just stand and serve?

How can you have the nerve, dear fickle Fate,

To show her heaven and then as quickly, abate!

Fleeting


Today’s WP Daily Prompt : Fleeting

 

From crib to grave

From knight to knave

From rags to riches

From riches to rags

From classrooms to boardrooms

From breeches to bridegrooms

From taught to teaching

From reading to writing

From still to beating

From bye to greeting

From loving to fighting 

From living to dying

From nothing to everything

From everything to nothing

From beaten to beating

From loving to hating

From craving to waiting

Time is fleeting 

Time  is fleeting….

So friends…..

Was there an unknown empty space inside me

Was I  Incomplete before  you and me became “We”?

Are you the  long lost other half of a whole

Was I Incomplete before my heart, you stole

Destiny


Today’s Daily Prompt:  Inevitable

 

Ah,

Inevitable it was

 …. that they had but just met

…. to let their hearts connect!

Yet

Inevitable it was

…..that they never knew

….. a gift given to very few!

So

Inevitable it was 

….. that they, as best friends, did part

…..  living n loving, they stayed apart!

Then

Inevitable it was

…… that their paths did cross

…… over the seas, miles across!

But

Inevitable it was 

….. that at last their souls did bond

….. within their hearts love they found!

Alas!

Inevitable it was

……. that they had found it too late,

…….  to love again was not their fate

Thus

Inevitable it was

……. that fate n destiny did ordain

…….  to live in pain and love in vain.

Leap


She woke up that day with a song in her heart. She was going home!! Being at Medical school was great, but this was her first trip back home! Yayy! Tone deaf, she happily hummed a new popular ditty as she packed her bag.

She joined the equally excited bunch of girls in the hostel lobby and they made their way to the railway station.  The  group of ” boys ” from their batch joined them there.  No one had even thought of reservations and all of  them happily entered the unreserved compartment. The slatted seats were anything but comfortable but the exuberance of youth shielded them from any such discomfort. Seeing them, they could have well been in Executive Class aboard a luxury liner!

Ripples

As I stand before you today ,

I think of what I should say…

The salad days when my life had just begun?

The giggles? The tears? The laughter? The fun?
